Watercolor Quilts in Batiks

Watercolor quilts are usually made from floral fabrics, but I hate florals, so I used batiks.
My friend, Dina Pappas, wrote a book about making watercolor quilts using a foundation stabilizer with gridded lines on it. I used her technique to make these quilts and what a breeze!! Even MY seams are straight - and that's saying something!

I also hate doing borders so my daughter Sarah Raffuse put the fantastic borders on the quilts for me - now I just need to quilt them. What do you think about the batik v. floral?

I like the Batik much better than floral. I'm with you M. Batiks RULE!
